About this listing
Our lovely 2 bedroom 3 bath apartment is located in the heart of Miraflores, just 3 blocks from the malecón (ocean walk). Enjoy a gourmet kitchen, large balcony, dining área and living room. Nice finishes and lots of light. Very comfortable!
Apt. is ideally located in the heart of Miraflores. Walking distance to basically everything the city has to offer. The apt. comfortably fits four people five if one doesn't mind sleeping on the goose down bed sized sofá (also very comfortrable).
Guests have access to all of the apt. except for the laundry facilities. Please, these facilities are reserved for guest preparation. Thank you for your understanding.
Interaction with Guests
My mother-in-law, Alicia will be at the apt. for your arrival and departure. She will show you the apt. give you the keys and anwer any questions you may have. She will be there for your departure as well to received the keys and to insure that the apt. is in order for the next arriving guest.
The neighborhood is cozy and quiet with its narrow tree lined streets (blooming yellow flowers in springtime) giving you the special flavour of old Miraflores. The neighborhood has many convenience stores (tiendas), there is a place to have your laundry done directly across the street! As well as many ambulatory vendors selling fruits and vegetables. A lovely área to walk about!
There is a bus stop at the corner of 28 de Julio and Ocharan (about 1 block from the apt.). The doormen are well informed also. If your spanish is good they can be of help.
Arriving from the airport, I suggest using "Green Taxi". They are located inside of the airport as you are leaving the Customs área. The price to the apt. should not cost more than S/.60 (about $20). Their rates are posted. No tipping is required. If returning to the aiport from the apt. just dial (phone number hidden) Taxi Satelital. The address is pre-programmed and they usually arrive within 10 minutes.
Other Things to Note
If traveling within Lima and you wish to use a taxi, some basic rules to follow are:
Always negotiate the price BEFORE entering the car.
Price is always in Soles, always confirm.
No tipping is required.
Just a note if you don't like the price offered from the first taxi there is almost always another waiting behind.
NO parties or other people coming over that are not part of the stay agreement.
No smoking allowed in apt.
Please leave apt. as you found it.
We would appreciate it very much as we typically have guests arriving immediately after your departure. Thank you and enjoy!
Mi experiencia fue muy buena, todo estaba tal cual fue prometido, y el departamento es muy comodo y con buena localización.
tiene seguridad y vigilancia las 24 hrs, y David siempre se mostro con buena disposicion para hacerme sentir bienvenido y resolver cualquier problema que surgiera en mi estadia
Truly enjoyed my stay at David's Miraflores apartment. The location was ideal to walk around and the apartment itself was spacious and comfortable. His mother was so kind and greeted us to hand over keys and do a walk thru. David was also very prompt with his replies which was so appreciative since I know he wasn't in the country. Definitely recommend :)
We enjoyed our stay in David's apartment very much. We were welcomed by david's mother in law. She only speaks Spanish but we got along quite well.
The location of the apartment is just perfect and the balcony was very much enjoyed as we had wonderfull weather when we were in Lima.
A few things on the negative side.
* The Door to the balcony could not be locked which didnt make us feel very safe during night or leaving our things when we were on tour.
* The apartment have 2 bedrooms. In the biggest one there is a big aquarium with fish. The smell during a warm day is not so good and the pump is quite noisy so we did not use this big and best bedroom.
* There are only very limited cooking equipment in the apartment so don't expect to be able to cook your own dinner.
Having said this - we will for sure recommend a stay in David's aparment
David's duplex is beautiful with two open balconies and a ton of space. We didn't meet David himself but his grandmother was there to hand off the keys and introduce us to the apartment. She was so sweet and it was a great way to start our stay. When we had questions leading up to our stay, David was responsive and very helpful through e-mail. I can highly recommend this listing if you're going to be in the Miraflores area.
David, o proprietário do apartamento, sempre foi muito agil e solicito nas informações e dúvidas. Deixou muitas informações sobre como realizar o translado e valores de taxi e se colocou a disposição para quaisquer dúvidas durante a estadia, fosse do apartamento ou de Lima, o que não precisamos, pois ficamos muitos dias em Lima. O apartamento fica numa região muito silenciosa, tranquila e super segura. Ótima localização para quem deseja tranquilidade, mas mesmo que queira se desolcar para badalações, taxis são muito baratos e andar a pé não tem perigo algum, mesmo altas horas da noite, e Miraflores tem absolutamente tudo. O O apartamento é bastante espaçoso, pois é uma cobertura, com dois pisos. Cozinha ampla, varanda ampla. Cama confortável, 3 banheiros e até um aquário grande, com peixes para vc cuidar, o que é ótimo. O que poderia ter sido melhor, era a limpeza da geladeira e mais uma ou duas panelas, isso ajudaria muito. O wifi é muito bom. O apartamento possui duchas, muito poderosas, mas a água fica variando de quente para fria (em tempos longos de quente e curtos de frio), acho que isso deve ser algo comum, embora não fosse algo que nos atrapalhasse muito. Realmente indicaria esse apartamento e retornaria com certeza.
Great living space and location-- a modern condo located in Mirarflores by the beach and other tourist destinations. David was very accommodating and easy to coordinate with.
Because we arrived very late in the evening (1:30am) we though getting into the flat might be difficult, but he made sure there was someone there to open the gate and allow us to get in. The apartment was clean with wonderful bathrooms and great furnished balconies and great views of the neighborhood. The exterior courtyards were BEAUTIFUL as you entered the apartment. So many colorful flowers and native plants.
Everything was as advertised and the Wifi worked well downstairs.
The location was PERFECT as you could walk everywhere from here.
Loved the fish tank!!!
